  • I was thrilled to win this from because I love romance novels and I love books set in small Southern towns This was a good story Not great, but enjoyable I didn t care for the sex scenes tame compared to a lot of books, but still however, I know how to skim so didn t detract from my enjoyment of the book I look forward to reading in this series, and I thank for the chance to read it.


  • Rather sweet read of redemption and small town life, warts and all Main characters were generally likable, though somewhat bland, and the relationship had a realistic ramping There was a nice Romantic Gesture that felt sincere and made the ending gratifying for me Some might find this a bit slow, but its pace was ideal for me.
